Abstract [en]


Over the years a consensus has developed that

involving users directly in the software development

process can lead to more useful and usable systems.

This has found its clearest expression in the

Participatory Design (PD) movement. However, a

limitation of PD is that it has primarily focused on

project stakeholders being co-located, whereas in

recent years we are starting to see software

development projects involve more distributed

collaborations. This workshop is aimed at researchers

and practitioners with an interest to overcome the

challenges of performing PD in distributed design

teams. Several critical issues need examination in order

to understand the usefulness and constraints of

distributed participatory design (DPD).
